Author Image of the week
Posted: May 10, 2017 12:24:14 pm
I saw this idea on another site and thought we should give it a go here.
Rule is you are only allowed to post one image a week, we'll go Monday-Sunday
I'll start so I won't be able to post another until next Monday.
One of my all time favourites...

From the Marvel Illustrated Novel Frankenstein? Digging deep for a nice pick! Very Happy

Here's one I have framed and hanging on my man-cave wall. The Lone Ranger - Death of Zorro #5.

So many great Francesco Francavilla covers to choose from. One of my favorite artists.

I was going to say I liked his Ghost Rider as well...What is he working on now?

Francesco Francavilla art has that old school feel to it, I don't read a lot that he does, but I do see a lot of his covers on the shelf.

He's drawing and writing a fantastic new Spirit mini for Dynamite. . .The Corpse Makers : https://comicbookrealm.com/series/46712/0/dynamite-entertainment-the-spirit-the-corpse-makers

It's REALLY good so far. His old school style is perfect for the noir/pulp groove of The Spirit. Best thing I've seen for the character in quite a while.

It's by Tim Vigil. It is a limited print, I own a copy, and was also used as the cover for a Seattle based horror magazine-- I can't remember the name of the magazine.

This is one of two pieces by Andrew Mangum that will appear in an upcoming issue of Gore Shriek published by FantaCo Publications. This piece in particular is special because it's a tribute the late Bernie Wrightson.

Breitweiser does a fantastic Captain America. He did a Captain America one shot (Operation Zero Point) that is one of my favorite Cap stories out there. I see he does a great Red Skull too. Nice pick! Very Happy

A homage to the last panel in X-Men 132. I like it. It's my opinion that the last panel in X-Men 132 is the most iconic image of Wolverine ever.

As I started reading Marvel's "Blink and you missed it" 6 issue run of All New Captain America for a Longbox Junk review, I realized that, think what you will of the idea of Sam Wilson Captain America. . .but this is one SWEET cover!

Stuart Immonen did an outstanding job on art for this run in general, but this cover just punches me right in the eye.
